Slave Trade App For The Sale Of African Women Discovered In Kuwait, Dubai + Video –

A British Broadcasting Corporation documentary showing African wives and maids being sold in Kuwait, the Arabian Gulf and Dubai in an online slave market has gone viral.

According to the documentary, the women most sold by these Arabs are largely black women from Africa.

They sell them for $800.

A BBC undercover team posed as a couple who wanted to buy a slave advertised online.

They called the salesman and fixed a day to see the maid.

When they arrived at the seller, they learned that the slave was a 16-year-old girl from Ghana.

Journalists said that by employing a cleaner under the age of 21, the female (vendor) was breaking Kuwaiti laws and facing up to six months in prison.

In addition, unidentified African women are sold on an application known as: “For Sale app”, provided by Apple and Google.

The For Sale app is also used to sell cars and other items.

It has been learned that these women are sold and bought for thousands of US dollars.

The UN Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Slavery, Urmila Bhoola, who saw the documentary, noted that companies that host apps used for these slave trades will be held accountable.

Bhoola said: “This is a quintessential example of modern day slavery.

“Here, we see a child being sold as property.

“What they are doing is illegal and it is not only a violation of Kuwait’s national laws, it is a violation of international human rights and labor law.

“If Google, Apple, Facebook or any other company hosts apps like this, they should be held accountable.

“What they are doing is promoting an online slave market.”
